The International Institute for Holocaust Research

The majority of Vienna's Jewish population was deported during 1942 in transports that took them to the killing sites of Eastern Europe and to the Theresienstadt ghetto. Several transports departed from the city between 1943 and 1944 taking deportees to the east. Most of these transports carried relatively few Jewish deportees because, by this time, the Jewish population of Vienna (Wien) was very small.
